I love this embroidery pattern. I feel like its says- you are my best friend and you are always there for me- but with farm animals instead of words.
I started this pattern while I was sick the other week. I still like to feel at least a little productive while I’m stuck on the couch. It reminded me of my younger sick days, and I would cross stitch while watching movies. Its just enough project to keep you busy, but not too much that it makes your fuzzy head hurt more.
Can you believe March is coming to an end? Its already time for those April showers that will bring us May flowers. But before the rain comes, I thought we could all use one more pinch of luck- in the form of clover embroidery. I made the four-leaf ones easy to find.
This little parade of desserts gets me. I haven’t practiced my fabric embroidery in a while, but I loved making this treat towel gift. It now lives in the home of someone who deserves a tiny dessert parade in their honor every day.
I almost bought some candy corn at the store today. I like about 3 candy corns, and then my teeth start to cry. But they remind me of Halloween, so I still want them for decoration. We still need to get some pumpkins, and then we can get out the rest of the decorations! This year, I added some silly weavings to our Halloween collection. A black cat and a bright moon to hang on the wall.
These cows look so pleased with themselves. I guess they should be, since they turned out all cute and stuff. For mother’s day, I made my ma this fancy tote bag, with a little parade of cows embroidered on the front.
We’ve lived in our house together and been married for almost a year, so it was time to add our family crest to the place.
I pay way too much attention to the back of my embroidery. Especially since it was covered up anyway. I just don’t want people in the 18th century to think I had loose morals because the back of my embroidery is all messy.
This kind of embroidery is the most fun. If I was around in the 18th century, I would have been cranking out the embroidery.
When that part was finished, I asked it what it felt like being. It said a flag, so then came some triangle math.
I used more leftover wedding fabric scraps for the back. It seemed fitting.
Then I sewed it all up, added some hanger loops, and stitched the edges. And someday, if someone rips it all apart, they will see how neat the back of my work looks.
